Poker is not just about luck- there are good and bad players based upon their decision making capabilities. Some people can think things through and have an edge over other owing to their intelligence. Whereas some people are just “hyper-aggressive”. So often in casinos, these people play very random and aggressive poker WHEN THEY ARE SHORT STACKED. In turn these people affect the overall game in that – the more players at the table/game becomes more aggressive and now its more about luck than skill – the game becomes unfair becoz of the the actio of these aggressive players. Now of the 6 aggressive players in a table, 4 of them loose their chips and 2 of the remaining aggressive players become big stacked.When they become big stacked, they are no longer frustated and start playing normal with an big stack advantage.Meanwhile the skillfull players do not gain much in a chaotic and luck dependednt game. this is almost always the case at the casinos. This phenomenon is copmparable to the world history where the europeans wth their bloody history would be the aggressive players.
But the game is not over yet and there are still players left and chips to be won.The tournament goes on till there is one last man standing. So imagine if the idiot aggressive guy who became the big stack by luck says, we can stop competing now and call myself the winner now as i have the most chips. – thats non-sense right?, the good players have been chip leaders in the past at which point the frustrated idiots messed the game up. Now that they had become the chipleaders- they want to stop the game and call themselvs the winners.
Multi-culturalism in my view is something like that now. Now that the western countires are powerful, they want peace and stability in the world. History books are filled with chapters that say how these great white men conquered the world and invented every thing owing to their superiority. They want people to be content with the current situation where the english speaking white population is advantaged in most aspects of life. Now being the leaders in technology,arts,politics and culture, they can easily push their language ,culture and life-style to others. very one starts kissing their ass and becomes a coconut so that they could exploit them even more.
So this is what multi-culturalism means to me, end of competing and accepting the western culture as the winner. and that is why i would be against.
My cousins in sydney do not give a damn about the Indian identity. Infact many second genration indians ive spoken to are embarrased by the FOBs . They think that their own kind is naive, backward and they simply want to embrace all things western and integrate completely into the western society.
So if you are a NRI or a second-gen and if at all you get my point on this multi-cultural situation, advocate REVERSE-INTEGRATION. Do more to promote your your own culture and identity. reserach your history more and care about the future of your culture. understand how the indian history, attitudes and society are mis-interpreted and try to change that rather than blindly accepting the western interpretations and idealogies. ive seen second gens in sydney who are in a even more sorry state than fobs – just coz fobs are not confused abt their identity and agenda. so maintain more ties with your own culture and people. In my previous post, i have explained why i think why ones culture(way of thinking,language ,attitudes) is an important thing that represents the individual and why one has to try to preserve it.
Guys understand this – WE ARE BEHIND ENEMY LINES. That is why we are facing so many hardships in any country that we go to -oz,europe or US.
We are negatively stereotyped, made to work hard jobs, dead-end shifts, lack of opportunity, lack of social acceptance,ridiculed and just exploited for our I.T. skills.
There is not much of a conceptual difference between what I.T. guys in the west are doing compared to what the construction workers in the middle east are going through. They are not welcoming us to live in their country but using us for our skills and labour.
why is this happening to us? becoz we go there
why do we go there? becoz india is comparitively poorer. some people dont entirely accept this and they just buy into this notion that western countries are culturally or morally just better. They like to complaint about india to every person they meet.
But the fact is any country that is poor, does not have enough funds to enforce a proper system or law, education and everything that are being complained about. so we cant blame india too much, if it is corruption prone and full of slums.
The thing is we didnt always live like this. our glory days were in BC. but even from 1st cntury AD to 15th century AD india’s GDP was around 35%(we were the richest-wiki ‘list of regions by past GDP’) of the worlds GDP compared to less than 2% in 1940s. even today american GDP constitues only about 23%.
In the 1770s 85% of children below 5yrs of age died becoz of poverty in London- read Ayn Rand “Capitalism”. 300 yrs ago the britsh came to india-they were “behind enemy lines”. They were ready to die fighting . for what?- to plunder the resources from india to take it back to their country. they did.
one needs more investigation on these topics”aryan Invasion theory” to see how they divided us and” cultural imperialism” – to understand how they made indians feel like english, and whites were superior to them.
so now we are the ones who are behind enemy lines as our country is poorer, just like the english 300 yrs ago. SO what do we have to do????
well the strategy of arabs is to have as many children as possible and change the population demographics of western nations to be predominatly arab race in the coming decades.Thats one way of ‘invasion’ – to change the demographics and spread your culture thereby. If we try to do the same, we will be competing with chinese,arabs, etc and who knows they might even close the doors in the future and this might not be possible – we inturn end up adopting and enriching the european culture.already the history books are teaching that the white man conquered and civilised the world – underming our achievements but thats a bigger topic to explore. so multi-culturalismand acceptance might not be such a great idea.
lebanon is is just a port – no natural resources and
been plagued with war for decades. but its still comparitively richer(per capita GDP) why?? – becoz 20 % of lebanese GDP comes from remittance by members living overseas.
every dolar that you guys send back counts- its simply like taking the money out that was supposed to be circulating in australia, and placing in the indian economy. this strenghtens the indian economy so much. dont pay an australian waitress 25 dollars an hour for just carriying the food to your table with an attitude. Stop spending your money there and send it home, buy a land, invest it – buy anything in india – even if you are planning to raise you family there, send a significanr amount back to your relatives here and invest here. inject it into the indian economy and take it out of their system. When we become rich/powerful – the whole world will look to us and we can kick their asses then. SO whatever difficulty you are going through,you can find redemption for it by REMTTING MONEY.
because you will know that you are cerainly making an impact on the things to come when you do that
some guys dont think this way, just becoz a white person talks to them every now and then they feel happy, feel like they are special. but overall- you are regarded as someone who is weak,insignificant and someone who is from a third world country. Now please post this message to people you know, in forums and blogs. INFORMATION PROPGATION matters, it guides people do the things you feel strongly about. if u pass it on it will be read and it will make an impact.
Just spread ur genes worldwide, and all us indians can claim success out of this
